Golf Course Review

Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club is the 15th oldest golf club in the world dating to 1793. In fact, when you play holes 6 through 8 you will be paying over the footprint of Located 20 minutes from Inverness on the Chanonry Peninsula overlooking the Moray Firth opposite Fort George. It is known for being one of the best value for money courses in Scotland.

Despite golf being played on the links, it was in the late 19th century before the club would really take off. A clubhouse was erected in 1895 and by 1888 there were 50 members. Like most clubs, WW1 affected the club and playing over the links virtually ceased. However, by 1924 the course had been reestablished and extended to 18 holes.

In 1932, James Braid was invited to redesign the entire course. WW2 would again affect the links but the return of golf would be seen in 1946. The bones which Mr Braid left are the foundation on which the current course Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club plays.
